Senior Research Scientist at the Australian E-Health Research Centre., CSIRO
I am a computer scientist, researcher and former radio scientist. I spend most of my day building and talking to chat-bots for use in autism spectrum disorder, chronic pain and genetic counseling at the CSIRO.
My broad research interests are language, logic and artificial general intelligence.
I have expertise in natural language processing, logic, software design, functional programming, artificial intelligence, machine learning, radio physics and mathematics . My previous research at the University of Queensland was on biomedical imaging for detecting strokes in the brain and breast cancer using microwave radiation.
I am a beekeeper, rare book collector, and currently learning Latin.
I am also the father of a rambunctious autistic boy who is unaware he is bilingual and functions like a human GPS system. He is frequently involved in my research.
